Kripashankar case: SIT submits probe report to court
Mumbai: A special investigation team (SIT) probing the unaccounted wealth cases against former Mumbai Congress chief Kripashankar Singh on Thursday submitted its confidential report to the Bombay High Court.
The SIT report came following Feb 22 directives of Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Roshan Dalvi to Mumbai Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik to probe the allegations against Singh. The ruling came on a public interest petition taken up by the court.
A former minister of state for home and presently a legislator from Kalina (Santacruz east), Singh and his family members were accused by social activist Sanjay Tiwari of possessing huge assets disproportionate to their known sources of income.
Tiwari, who had filed the PIL, also accused the Congress leader of being linked to the money-laundering scams involving former Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda.
The SIT report, which came three days after the Mumbai Police submitted a status report on the probe before the Supreme Court, was taken on the record by the high court here Thursday.
The developments follow a case registered against Singh and his family members Feb 28, besides raids at several properties owned by them in and around Mumbai.
Singh has been charged under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, Prevention of Corruption Act and Arms Act after a large quantity of bullets, beyond the permissible limits, were found from his house during one of the raids.
